Mike Allen was born into a Christian family with a father who became an elder in the Church of Christ in Petrolia, Texas, and a mother who was a devout Christian woman. He was baptized into Christ at the age of thirteen.
He attended Abilene Christian College where his Christian growth was strengthened in Bible classes, chapel services, church services at College Church of Christ, representing Abilene Christian College in basketball, and in meeting and marrying Sally, a devout Christian woman who has been his wife through the years as they have walked this journey together with God.
He received his degree in Dentistry and his Masters degree in Orthodontics from Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas and began his orthodontic practice at 3232 Broadway in Garland in 1969. He and Sally have two children, Julie Clemons and Mark Allen. Julie and her husband, Tommy, have three sons, Michael, Tanner and Tucker. They live in Paris, Texas. Mark, who lives in Rockwall, is also an orthodontist. Mike and Mark practice together in Rockwall and in offices in Garland.
Mike says, “God truly blessed Sally and me by directing our path to Saturn Road in 2002. My passion is to teach the Bible and to lead others to Christ. My dreams are to continue to serve as a shepherd in overseeing the flock, continue to strive to lead in a gentle manner, and for the Lord to continue to bless our church family at Saturn Road in our walk together toward eternity in heaven.”
